Black Panther concept art

I’m not the kind of guy who cries “racism” every time some idiot does something stupid with a black character. I think the word gets thrown around so much that real racism gets to hide and cause the real damage. So I’m not calling racism here but as CBR’s Albert Ching points out, this is NOT how you introduce the big milestone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to people, namely a black superhero that isn’t just the supporting cast like War Machine and Falcon have been. While there are more black superheroes in fiction than you think, there is an underrepresentation, and even fewer good ones. Fans have been wanting to see this finally happen and when you know the character under even good writers you know why Entertainment Weekly should have rethought that cover.
